Block Senders OE5.5

As you know if a spam email address is of the form
[email protected] and you add it to Block Senders thats OK. Well the next day another spam email arrives from the same source [email protected] and it is NOT detected. I have therefore tried using a Block Sender of just ddd.com but it is not blocked.
Where have I gone wrong here? Thanks David

Open up the email, & view the properties. Look at the e-mail addresses listed in the header, spammers usually send from a different address hence the fact your rule is not working.

I have looked in the properties of the sender and thats the email address I have used in Block Senders. Please advise in my example above whether ddd.com if put in block senders would remove [email protected] and [email protected]?

Thanks David

Refresh please

No it wont, david4637, as far as I'm aware you can't block domains in OE, only individual email addresses.

Thanks MAJ for that, someone did suggest you could block domains but as you say it would appear you can not. The problem if you can not block domains is you end up with lots of email addresses from the same spammer who just changes the first part of the address every time. Any other ideas to combat this? Thanks David

I'm sure you can block a domain.

Just type...

thedomain.com

Do you classify the Domain name as ddd.com or @ddd.com in my example above? Thanks David

  powerless 17:38 05 Oct 2003

ddd.com

* @ thedomain.com should do it. (no spaces)

I will try your suggestion of *@ddd.com and report back. Thanks David
